TEYR - Debut Album Launch Tour
'FAR FROM THE TREE'
An evening of the finest folk music live at the The Art House, Southampton, with a performance in the gallery followed by a jam session in the cafe with the band and Southampton Folk Soc.
Folk trio TEYR (‘3’ in the Cornish language) evolved out of the London session scene, combining their multiple instruments and voices in every innovative way they can muster. Heavily influenced by the great Irish, Scottish, English and Cornish musicians who've come before, they’ve honed their craft and thrived on weaving diverse threads together.
Described by Folk Radio UK as “high-energy brilliance”, James Gavin (guitar, fiddle), Dominic Henderson (uilleann pipes, whistles) and Tommie Black-Roff (accordion) are three of London’s finest new breed of folk musician. After touring the UK & Ireland in 2015 and 2016 including appearances at Cambridge, Cecil Sharp House and numerous festivals, they look set to establish their name and their unique musical mix on the world in the year to come.
Featuring ten tracks of blistering originals and reworked ballads, Far From The Tree is a distillation of two years of playing, writing and wrangling. This highly anticipated debut album was recorded with the assistance of acclaimed producer Gerry Diver (Lisa Knapp, Sam Lee, Tom Robinson) and displays the full breadth of the trio’s innovative and distinctive sound.
“High-energy brilliance” - Folk Radio UK
“Musicians of this dexterity, quality and charisma make post-trad ensemble TEYR one of the most playfuland artful groups around” - Sam Lee, The Nest Collective
"The future of folk music is safe in the hands of young musicians like this” - Na-mara
"These chaps play like ancient souls in young, charismatic bodies. TEYR take something old and keep it compellingly new. Not to be missed” - Outline Magazine
“High octane folk drawing deeply from their combined heritage - three consummate musicians playing with verve, mystery, magic and a healthy dose of disrespect for pointy headed purism - one of London's finest trad groups in many a year” - Gerry Diver, The Speech Project
Our Director Paul Bickmore (better known as Bik) spends a lot of his time tracking down a varied, interesting range of performances for us to host here at The Art House.
A seasoned musician himself (as well as being the man who does the sound engineering on the night - something he does extremely well), Bik hand-selects the very best acts to showcase in our gallery space - his criteria?
<-- They have to make him feel like this - and they will have the same effect on you, we promise.
We are a city centre venue and parking can be in short supply. If you are driving, please make sure you leave plenty of time to find a space click here for a map of where the nearest parking spaces can be found.
We recommend Kings Park Road car park:
We are about 10 minutes walk from Southampton City Centre train station (head up the hill toward the Guildhall clock tower) and on the route for most city centre buses (the Unilink U1 stops virtually outside.)
Events are generally suitable for adults, young people and older children - children must be accompanied by an adult at all times, however. Young children are also welcome to come along but be aware some poems and songs may contain adult content (although we try to keep these until after children have left!)
Most events are held on our first floor, accessible by a wide staircase with a sturdy banner. Comformatable seating is provided. We regret that, due to space and other constraints, we are generally unable to relocate our events to the ground floor for those who require ground level access - so sorry.
